Penniless, homeless and virtually lifeless, the vagrant "Doughface" Jack is about to discover that where medical marvels meet the mysteries of the human mind, amazing things happen. The Tramp acquires a capability beyond his imagination and without equal on Earth. Riding the rails, Jack runs afoul of a local sheriff and ends up with a crushed skull. He's as good as dead until a savvy country doctor performs a bit of medical magic. Jack wakes up to find that his brain has been drastically altered. He has the power to save lives-and destroy them-with a single glance. Will Jack use his astounding power for good ... or for evil? His journey of discovery takes him to New York and into the arms of a woman, who has a plan of her own. Together they're bound for Washington, DC, and a psychic adventure that could change the shape of history. The unexplored powers of the mind-along with great writing and fine acting-come together as the audio version of The Tramp takes you into a world as imaginative and thrilling as your favorite comic book.

Professional reviews

"What would you do if you could suddenly make people grow younger, heal injuries with a thought, and eradicate illnesses and scars? Bob Caso and cast perform this short story about such a character with enthusiasm. After radical brain surgery, The Tramp, aka Doughface Jack, manifests the extraordinary mental ability to heal anyone he comes into contact with. The gravelly voiced narrator moves the story along as the cast of young and old voices puzzles out the mystery. The talented cast of this 1930s fantasy encourages listeners to suspend their disbelief of the brain's ability to heal or kill at the speed of thought. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
